“Order of the Pheonix is so dark and yet so hopeful. It’s about resisting oppression in any way you can.”The Book Guide® Editor
Right from the beginning, you’ll find everything to be intriguing as always, with an excellent set of new characters being introduced. The main characters around Harry are of course the main focus, and the narration inherits a lot from how the teenage Harry views the world. Average emotional rollercoaster of a teenager blends in nicely with the main plot, and makes things more interesting.
J.K. Rowling really nails down her tonal shifts in this book. The darker tone really takes this series to the next level in terms of plot AND character work. Order of the Pheonix is so dark and yet so hopeful. It’s about resisting oppression in any way you can.
